WERA89: Potato Virus and Virus-Like Disease Management
(Multistate Research Coordinating Committee and Information Exchange Group)
WERA89: Potato Virus and Virus-Like Disease Management
Duration: 10/01/2021 to 09/30/2026
Statement of Issues and Justification
Viral pathogens and virus-like pathogens of potato are costly to control, requiring limited generation seed programs and the targeted control of virus vectors, like insects and nematodes, with pesticides and other methods to reduce their spread and minimize their impact. Potato diseases caused by viral pathogens result in hundreds of seed acres and/or their tuber product being rejected from seed certification and also result in commercial losses due to reductions in yield and quality leading to huge financial losses to the producer. Some of the more prevalent viruses of potatoes include alfalfa mosaic virus (AMV), potato mop-top virus (PMTV), tobacco rattle virus (TRV), tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV), potato leaf roll virus (PLRV), potato virus M (PVM), potato virus S (PVS), potato virus X (PVX) and, most importantly, potato virus Y (PVY) and its various strains. Additionally, the causal agents of purple top disease and zebra chip, which are not viruses but are epidemiologically similar to viruses, have recently become established in the western potato production areas.
Release of new cultivars highly susceptible to PVY, but asymptomatic when infected, has dramatically increased issues with PVY throughout the western potato growing regions. PVY is of particular concern because insecticides have not been effective for reducing PVY spread. Other management options, such as removal of symptomatic plants, are not practical for managing this virus at a large scale. Additionally, multiple strains of PVY have been found to occur throughout the western growing region creating difficulties for disease diagnosis and further exacerbating the efforts to reduce the impact of PVY. Of major concern is the fact that new strains are supplanting the common strain of PVY (PVYO) resulting in milder symptoms on the plants, greater spread throughout the crop, and potentially significant tuber necrosis injury. Some of the newer cultivars which are resistant to the common strain of PVY have been found to be very susceptible to some of the newer strains.
Established and emerging virus strains pose a constant threat to certified seed and commercial potato production. In the last decade, PVA and PVM were not known to occur in the West. PVM seems to have been contained by continued efforts of certification programs, while PVA has become endemic in some regions and absent in others. New strains of PVY, particularly those that produce internal tuber necrosis and reduced yield, were not known in the US prior to the late 1990s but are now commonly found and have become more prevalent in most production areas. Since then, PVY strains have been identified and monitored in the potato-growing regions of the US, and efforts to quantify their impact on the crop and evaluate the performance of new cultivars currently being released from the potato breeding programs have been initiated and continue. In the past, TSWV has been a sporadic problem in the western region but is currently becoming a significant problem in areas where it has become endemic. Finally, soil borne viruses such as PMTV, which is vectored by Spongospora subterranea f. sp. subterranea, and TRV, spread by the stubby root nematode, are serious issues in many western production regions with increasing economic losses due to tuber necrosis and downgrading of raw potatoes. As soil borne viruses increase in prevalence, they are likely to become one of the most significant limitations to potato production that producers will face in the next few years. A large effort in the form of another USDA/ARS Specialty crops grant is currently underway to help understand and develop management techniques for pathogens causing potato tuber necrotic disease. Emerging virus threats are always on the horizon and pose a wider risk to the potato industry as a whole because many more new cultivars are being developed with little information on their reaction to all viruses as well as the industry moving more seed each year from more diverse areas to answer production needs.
There are public and environmental concerns surrounding the use of pesticides on potatoes. Potato growers are faced with the potential loss of key pesticides because of cancellation of registration. In addition, difficulties in developing new information for re-registration or development of new pesticides are becoming more difficult each year. Lastly, pest resistance to current pesticides is always of concern. Pesticides targeting the vectors of some viral pathogens and virus-like pathogens have been useful in the management of diseases like potato leaf roll and zebra chip. Certainly, the loss of pesticides or loss of effectiveness will reduce yield and increase quality losses if alternative solutions for vector management are not developed.
Related, Current and Previous Work
For 2021-2025, a highly collaborative multi-state and multi-institutional project focusing on necrotic viruses was funded by the USDA-NIFA-SCRI program. Goals from this project include the following: 1. To translate high throughput detection of PVY and PMTV in dormant potato tubers, their vectors, and, for PMTV, in soil and potting mix, to plant diagnostic labs; 2. To improve virus-vector management through development of epidemiological models and through research-based recommendations for potato production; 3. To develop molecular markers for resistance genes against PVY and PMTV, and Ss; to clone at least one PVY resistance gene; and to understand virus impacts on the physiology of stored potatoes; and 4. To identify economic, or incentive barriers to effective disease management and to use this information to aid in industry adoption of improved management strategies and harmonized regulations.
In previous years, major efforts were funded by the USDA-SCRI program focused on PVY in 2009-2014 and again from 2015-2019. These efforts resulted in the development of PVY strain typing tools, refinement of methods for PVY detection in tubers (both serological and molecular), new potato cultivars displaying resistance to recombinant PVY strains, and enhanced management of PVY vectors. In addition, multi-state intensive field workshops aimed to train seed potato field inspectors to identify foliar symptoms associated with various virus strain and potato variety interactions were offered at various locations in two separate years.
Since 2013-14, the Northwestern Potato Research Consortium supported the creation of a team of researchers in the PNW. This team includes most of the researchers involved in virus management projects in three states, ID, WA, and OR; it is now expanded to address new, emerging virus problems. Additionally, from 2016 to the present, members of WERA89 successfully leveraged support through several small block grants through the Idaho and Washington departments of agriculture and partnered with researchers across the US in large successful USDA-SCRI grants focused on potato viruses and virus-like diseases.
The continued success since the inception of the WERA89 group highlights the value of a joint, comprehensive approach to address virus problems in the PNW. Members of this team will continue to cooperate on various types of federal grant proposals to be submitted to USDA, NSF, and other programs. The WERA89 group is vital for continued collaboration across multiple states that promotes judicious use of resources, identifies priorities, and coordinates research efforts to solve potato virus and virus-like disease problems.
To provide a regional forum for the exchange of ideas through cooperation and collaboration among those involved in potato virus and virus-like disease research for the long-term goal of improving plant health and crop sustainability.
Comments: Inherent in this is the pursuit of shared grant funding opportunities, where appropriate, by WERA89 participants.
To assist participants in the identification, transfer and utilization of knowledge, methods and resources.
Comments: Additionally, resources will be directed toward dissemination of information to concerned parties for implementation of potato disease and vector control strategies.
To act in an advisory capacity with regional and national organizations for the purpose of evaluating concerns, recommending policies and reviewing quarantine and seed certification issues, and other matters pertinent to management of potato viruses, or virus-like organisms.
Procedures and Activities
Annual meeting. The WERA89 executive committee will arrange for an annual meeting site where participants can come together to discuss current concerns of virus and virus-like diseases occurring in potato crops. This forum will also include the presentation of on-going research on potato viruses and VLD, their vectors and alternate hosts. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to consider research priorities for the upcoming years.
Committee projects. Subgroups of the participants will be formed to work on specific projects throughout the year including educational materials, presentations, and reference sheets.
Expected Outcomes and Impacts
- Identification of priority research issues and development of cooperative strategies to obtain funding, conduct the research and publish the results.
- Identification and characterization of new virus problems, new virus strains and virus-like organisms with dissemination of this information to WERA89 members and the potato industry.
- Maintain strong relationships with state certification programs and encouraging the standardization of testing methods for potato viruses and phytoplasmas.
- Cooperation with WERA27 to identify reactions of new clonal selections to specify virus diseases affecting the potato crop in the west.
- Exchange ideas and information via annual meetings and brief publications specifically directed at interested clientele, and routine communication.
- Act as a resource group which would provide advice and recommendations to impact policy relating to: a) germplasm importation; b) development of new transgenic potato cultivars; c) utilization of transgenic resistance and germplasm; d) seed certification issues dealing with potato virus diseases; and e) other pertinent potato virus or phytoplasma related issues.
Projected ParticipationView Appendix E: Participation
In the short-term, we plan to extend our findings to the researchers/scientists participating in WERA89 as well as other scientific colleagues with interest in potato virus and virus-like diseases and associated management strategies. Participants in WERA89 regularly interact with these potato researchers throughout the year as part of the active potato research community in the U.S. Through these interactions, results will be disseminated to all U.S. potato researchers at meetings among breeding programs, through meetings of the Potato Association of America (http://potatoassociation.org/), American Phytopathological Society, and via peer reviewed publication.
Through longer-term interactions with members of the potato production and processing industry, we will transfer information developed by WERA89 participants to the grower community with the goal of increasing the adoption of new farming technologies, cultivars, and disease management strategies.
Effective communication between researchers and producers/processors will lead to more relevant research outcomes and faster adoption of results by stakeholders.
Various participants have active Web presences through which publications and news can be disseminated.
We also help plan and participate in major outreach events and field days such as, but not limited to, Washington/Oregon Potato Conference, WSU Potato Field Day, Hermiston Farm Fair, OSU HAREC Potato Field Day, Idaho Potato Conference, ID field day(s) and others.
Various WERA89 participants are highly integrated into the producer-led industry organizations and research-oriented outreach channels. Outcomes of the WERA89 meetings will be efficiently communicated to all who are interested in potato production.
The committee will utilize a three-officer system containing a Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and general membership. Each year a new Secretary shall be elected at the annual meeting. At the end of the annual meeting, the previous year’s Secretary will move into the Vice Chair position and the Vice Chair will move into the Chair position. There will be an effort made to spread the officer duties around the Western Region so that no one state or area will have all of the officer functions at any given time. In addition, a subcommittee will be established each year for the purpose of handling the annual meeting details. Annual meetings will be rotated around the Western Region.
The literature cited is meant to convey the broad scope of publications members of this group have attributed to discussions held at the annual meetings in the previous period. In many cases, the research conducted and shown in this listing was greatly aided by those involved in being able to discuss this work in advance of beginning the project, during its progress, and prior to final publication.
